SOURCE: Honda Civic heater / blower noise.

you need to remove your glove box assy.(beleave only 2 screws and pivot clips) make sure its not anything from glove box that has slipped behind. once box is out uf way you can access easier the blower motor assy. it actually attaches into blower box from bottom side. when looking at you will find three screw/bolts fastening motor to casing. remove those and then slowly lower motor and fan cage(attached to motor shaft) out from housing. sometimes it takes a little convincing to come out but not real tough. once out you most likely find the object causing noise in fan cage or resting up on lip area of housing unit. once found install in reverse order. let me know if this helps or if we need to dig a little deeper into! good luck!

SOURCE: How do I replace a Heater Blower motor in a 2003 Pontiac Vibe?

Remove the Glove box. You will then have access to the Blower unit. There are 3 screws that are holding the blow unit in place. You will need a Phillips screw driver and a 1/4 socket. Once you have located the unit remove the 3 screws and the unit will fall straight down. Unplug the wire harness and then reinsert the new Blower Motor. If you purchase an original GM part this makes life much easier, you just screw the 3 screws back into the holes and then plug the wire harness back in and reinstall the glove box. If you use an aftermaket part you will need to do some wire splicing to make it work but it is a 10 to 20 minute job depending on which part you decide to replace the Blower with.

A/C Heater Blower Motor for 2010 Nissan Altima, was making a noise for a few weeks and then just stopped blowing.


sounds like a mouse attack to me. mice get into the heater vents and blower motor cage and make nests. those can throw your blower motor out of balance, thus resulting in the noise and then the motor just gets jammed and stops operation. but it could be just the blower motor failure it self. have it checked.

I have a 2004 Impala. when I turned off the ignition myheater blower stayed on what can i do tofix it cheap?


More than likely the resistor for the heater motor is causing the problem
it is located behind the heater motor under the dash on the passengers side. If the heater motor is making noises it may be drawing to much and caused the resistor problem.

Honda pilot 2007 blower fan making noise blower fan was replaced once still making noise


Either its developed the same fault or the fan motor bearing has failed, needs greasing or, if there's a belt, the belt is slipping.

The front heaters are not blowing out any air, but the back heaters blow out air, but it's not very warm, and my passenger side front tire makes a rubbing noise when I turn to the left.


you have to check to see if you have any power at the blower motor, if you do then the motor is no good, if you dont you could have a bad blower motor resister. If its not blowing that hot you might have to flush the cooling system.
The noise you hear when you turn is probably the right front hub bearing

The blower motor resistor is bad.It is located on the passengers side by the blower motor.You will need to replace it.Just follow the blower motor noise when is is on and you will find the resistor very close to the blower motor.The wires from the blower go to the resistor.This is a common problem for most makes.Hope this helps.Good luck.

My heater fan was making noise but was still blowing the hot air out. Now it makes no noise but blows no air out. I assume the fan/blower motor is bad. How do I replace it?


your blower mototr stopped turning , the noise you heard was one of the cage weights came loose and put the blower cage off ballance, first you need to locate the blower fan and check to make sure it has 12 volts, if so then you need to use a jumper wire to ground the other wire going into the blower motor, if this turns the blower motor on then you have a blower motor resister out and need to replace it.
